A ceremonial opening of the Volga Shipping Company (part of the UCL Holding) navigation on the Upper Volga took place on April 25th. The company vessel Volgo-Don 5050 passed through the gateway of the lock No.13 of Gorodets Hydro Power Plant and headed for Cherepovets for metal loading.
Navigation on the Lower Volga (Volzhsky, Volgograd region) and on the river Don (Rostov-on-Don) was opened in the end of March. The Volga Shipping vessels of the RSD44 project were the first to start cargo transportation.
Over 40 company fleet units are operating now on the inland water ways: Volgo-Don type vessels, new vessels of the Captains series (RSD 44 project), pusher tugs.
In April 2017 the vessels are carrying sulfur, crops and metal.
